Scrap Tiffany Blog Hop

Scrap Tiffany is Having a Blog Hop!  Even better it is a Christmas Themed one what a great way to get you in the mood and give some idea on what you can do for your Christmas projects!  If you arrived from Kristina's blog you are on the right track but if not,  be sure to start at the Scrap Tiffany blog and then hop all the way through for some great ideas! 

For my project I used my Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather again.  I am still also working my way through the wooden blocks my dad cut for me.  These are so easy to make.  They are cut from 2 X 4s and sanded.  I then painted them on the edges and back with some acrylic paint.  For the front I just cut some pattern paper for the background and then cut out some letters.  Easy peesy, only really took minutes to make - minus paint drying time.  Getting a jump start on some of my gifts, love that!

I also made this Christmas Planner with the same paper pack, isn't it versatile!

The inside of the planner.  More info on this planner can be found here.


Finally a gift for my classroom parent helpers.  A hot chocolate gift pack.  This is such tasty hot chocolate I will definitely make more.  I may try vanilla next time.  This is for Virginia's Jaime Oliver challenge at the Scrap Shotz forum.





Now be sure to begin at Scrap Tiffany and hop through the participants:

Your next stop on the hop is the talented Michelle, you need to go!
